I'm not sure if it's been discussed before, but what would really help me, (and other artists) is if I knew how many illos/designs are expected from a concept artist everyday. In addition, I'd like to know how much time is given to the artist for each piece...would it depend on the particular subject matter they were working on (obviously, 1 charac. design, would not take as long as doing an immense environment)?
It would help a lot, because, at this point, I'm struggling with speed. I feel like each digital illo I'm working on should take only 2 hours max, with 1 hour for a charac. design. Being aware of a timeframe would only help me put out higher quality work. By the way, being somewhat of a noob, I'm under the impression that a piece by someone like Justin Sweet would only take about an hour or so.
If anyone has any info, it would be much appreciated, and put to good use.
